No Transformer Prime 3G in Asus' mind?

Asus has denied the rumor on the 3G version of Eee Pad Transformer Prime which was reported earlier by some local media

According to Taiwan’s Asustek Computer Inc. they have no plans to launch a 3G version of its Eee Pad Transformer Prime tablet computer as reported on some local media.

A rumor was up in the air earlier which said that Asustek is expected to introduce the 3G enabled Transformer Prime within the first quarter of the year and it also with an improved casing. They have cleared the doubt among the consumers by saying they don’t have any product on their current roadmap which resembles the product in the rumor.

However, they said that they expect to launch 3G version models for other high-end products in the Transformer family in the future. This will help them expand their portfolio.

Last week at CES they presented the new Transformer TF700T which coexists with the current Wi-Fi version of Transformer Prime. This time they presented products aiming for different market segments, to target a larger amount of consumers.

And with the help of the Transformer Prime they are also targeting a 6million unit shipment which is far more than last year’s sales.
